VGA port is a massive waste of space. Most full size desktops don't include one as standard now, very odd decision on this form factor.

would this be suitable as a hackintosh? not sure if the spec is same as apple architecture, but if it is its a steal

There are a lot of VGA only monitors out there. Many larger machines/cards include a DVI-I port, which can provide VGA with an adaptor.

Hmm bit tricky this one, it'll need another 2GB ram really to make it more usable in daily chores and the tiny eMMC needs addressing I suspect but if you already had a spare stick of ram and an SSD (you did stock up last year when they were £30 right?) I'll vote hot but suspect others will downvote.

​hdmi>VGA adaptor is £5 on Amazon .... we have to buy a lot of these at work because of the lack of VGA on the Dell models we purchase.

but the point I was trying to make is this is a small form factor pc where space is a premium, the VGA port is an odd decision

I'm not taking it personally. Would like to see the greater wisdom behind the auto cold clicking. This is a deal. If someone can point to a better deal then that's what I want to know.

Heat given. A quick look around and can't find this model any cheaper.

£200 for a weak quad core, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a box that has the bare minimum of ports (ethernet, USB, HDMI, no type C, no displayport).

Looking to china I can find mini PCs for a similar price with 4GB of RAM, 120GB of proper SSD, a stronger quad core (N4200), and the only thing they lose is the VGA port. Still got licensed windows.

The kicker here might be wifi, this NUC includes an AC grade wifi card which you haven't mentioned.

Cold. Dont need to share anything.

BOXNUC6CAYSAJ - £192.33 on Amazon inc shipping (£186.33+ £6.00 delivery), at the time of writing, (though I note the seller has only 83% from only 105 total ratings, so I would probably go with the Ballicom deal, personally, if the CPU spec meets your needs)
